Some will hear the first guitar blast during the opening moments and think nothing of it. For others, The Replacements' "Bastards of Young" is such a touchstone that writer/director Greg Mottola ('Superbad') might have you in the palm of his hand before you've seen a single frame of the actual movie. Grade: B.   

Sundance Rewind

Funny films topped a funny year at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival

From the bad economy to a Proposition 8 backlash, many reasons were offered as why this year's Sundance Film Festival would be less crowded, less frantic, less everything. Indeed, the vibe was just a bit different in Park City in 2009 compared to past years. Press screenings were noticeably less crowded throughout the festival, and even public screenings during the second half of the festival were more likely to feature empty seats. Maybe even the global warming thing was in play, as 2008's nonstop week of blizzards was replaced by glorious sunshine for nearly the duration.
